We loved the warm welcome from the staff and nothing presented a problem if we had a request. Particular thanks to the young woman at the Edinburgh Residence by the name of 'Asya' who was charming and extremely helpful. My only complaint was that we missed the service of the rooms because we left the flat at 10.30am, so there was no refill of tea, coffee or toiletries, but this was a small thing.

Wow.... fabulous accommodation!

I couldn't fault anything with this place, gorgeous apartments with little home from home comforts... Loaf of bread in the bread bin, 2 pints of milk and butter portions in the fridge, not forgetting the mini cereal boxes, mini jams and tea/coffee! My daughter who is 9 was delighted with the free Knight Knight teddy! I was delighted with the whole package! Fast wifi, secure parking, central location, great kitchen and even a washing machine if you feel the need to wash before you return home (I didn't...) overall a five star service. I couldn't recommend enough. Thank you so much.

They thought of everything

Well equipped. Great to have breakfast pack provided. At least I did not have to bring many of the things I normally have to bring on holidays. Staff very friendly. Short walk to city centre and the shops. Loved Camera Obscura and also also spent a while at Edinburgh Castle

Family Fun

With a family of 5 we often have to rent two rooms on our holidays. This was a clean and comfortable apartment for all with a gated parking lot. We were greeted by Chris, who was so polite, friendly and helpful. They thought of everything really. From a lightly stocked kitchen (at no charge), with dishwasher and washer/dryer (in apartment) to umbrellas at the doors. They are environmentally friendly, beyond the usual not changing sheets and towels, providing excellent toiletries and quailty paper products. It is centrally located and we walked to the castle, Princes St, the Writer's museum, the Grass Market, countless tours, etc. Our children are ages 17, 13 and 4 each had a teddy bear on their pillows and our 4 year old was provided crayons and activity books. We all had a fantastic time. One thing to note is if you are traveling with children under 18, most local pubs/restaurants don't allow them past 8pm.

Getaway

The hotel was ok, staff were helpful. The room could have been a lot cleaner, the glass lamp shade was coated in dust and the maid didn't Hoover the carpet where I had dropped a packet of crisps. The location was poor although described central. There were THREE strip bars at the end of the street which we had to walk pass every time we left the appartment and every time we did were jaunted at by the men outside. They made rude and sexists remarks to my friend and myself which left us very upset and scared to leave the appartment at night. I am only glad that I didn't take my children to this appartment to be exposed to this. We were not made aware of this on booking and feel we should have been. It felt like we were staying in the red light district! This has been my only holiday this year and i have been saving up for a long time to go and I am very disappointed. Your comments would be appreciated. Regards

Tilava huoneisto Edinbourghin vanhassa kaupungissa

Pros: Viidelle hengelle oli kaksi kahden hengen makuuhuonetta + vuodesohva olohuoneessa, keittiö ja kaksi kylpyhuonetta.
Loistava sijainti (emme tarvinneet pe-ma -välisenä aikana bussilippuja kuin lentokentältä keskustaan ja takaisin)! Todella ystävällinen henkilökunta. Pidimme runsaasta aamiaispaketista, joka odotti huoneistossa.

Großzügiges Appartment, zentral gelegen

Die Apartments sind modern und bestens ausgestattet. Die Lage ist sehr zentral (ca. 10 Min. zur Royal Mile/Castle, 5 Min. Grassmarket). Das Personal ist superfreundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort logieren.
